Purchase “The Gathering” online

“It’s what the holidays were before shopping and Irving Berlin.”
Wall Street Journal

“They bring a breath of fresh, pine-scented air to an intensely crowded field.”
3 stars
Los Angeles Times

“A goosebump inducing ‘O Holy Night,’ stripped down to just standup bass and voice, is alone worth the price, but this classy offering is a much needed alternative to the typically overwrought fare that clogs the season’s racks.”
4 stars
American Songwriter Magazine

“It’s a fresh approach to wintry music, with mountain-music instrumentation and crystalline harmonies.”

4 1/2 stars

San Antonio Express News

“Collections of Appalachian holiday tunes have come along before, but one of the finest is now ‘The Gathering,'”

Press Citizen

“If it’s one and done, this quintet made it count for this Yuletide and for Yuletides yet to come.”
The Bluegrass Special

“Perfect with a glass of bourbon.”
Jazz Wax
